From Genesis 1:1-31
In the beginning of all beginnings God created all that ever was, and he did so with words!
God said let there be light, and it was so!
God said let there be sky and seas and land, and it was so!
Then God said let there be trees and grass and fruit and flowers. Let there be stars and planets and moons and comets, spinning about in shimmering pools of light, spreading from eternity to eternity throughout my universe. And let the waters of earth and the land and sky all be filled with marvelously moving life! And it was so!
Then God spoke humanity into existence. A man and woman who, like God himself, with dignity and discernment, may think and do and speak and love – and create.
As God's children, as people empowered with creativity by the Creator, may we create wonders with words, pointing others to the One who began it all.
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms" (1 Peter 4:10, TNIV). And if your gift is writing, dear friend, then God calls upon you to faithfully and creatively use your gift today.
(Dear Lord, Creator of all, may we use our creative gift of words to point the world back to you.)
